My stay here was very pleasant. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff was always friendly and pleasant. The property was clean and in a nice area. There was a beach about 5 minutes away. They had complimentary breafast everyday. I really didnt have anything negative other than they charge a parking fee for each day I was there and I had to pay a 200 dollar security deposit but I got that back the next day but I would stay again the next time I'm in the area.

It is dingy, but clean. The staff are nice and helpful. Sharon checked us in and was extra friendly. Our room was a good size and the bed was comfortable.

Simply put, it was ok; nothing more. One set of plugs did not work and the bathroom had a weird smell. The layout of the bathroom was such that the wash basin, toilet and bathtub were in the same room and the wash basin counter was very small. The first person answering the phone (female) also gave us the wrong directions causing us to drive an extra 16 miles as she provided an exit that did not exist in the direction we were travelling which was made clear to her. Another person (Lonnie) helped us when we called back and he provided clear instructions which was much appreciated. Elevator needs an overhaul as it made scary noises and this property charges $12 for parking. They did waive it when I informed them it was not noted on our reservation and that was nice. The breakfast was skimpy and within 30 minutes of the end time of 9am, there were no eggs left and they said they would not be making any more. They also ran out of milk as it was not well-attended even though there were less than 10 people dining at the time for breakfast. Try another hotel if you can. We will not return to this location.
